burke, who is a manager editor at, as you've been looking at this over the last 24 hours or so, justin, what your sense of what ties there may be, if any at all, to the conflict in that area? >> my gut says there's not too great a connection. i think more important to look at is their exile experience. essentially their chechens, but they have a very tenuous connection to chechnya. they spent a lot of time in kyrgyzstan, that is going through a marked democracy, and there's a chechen diaspora community in chechnya that they were part of that is being left behind because there's a very fierce fight over resources in that central asian state. then they move to dagastan, that's another north caucasuses public that's part of russia, and that's also a hotbed of discontent with economic and religious ferment. so, you have to look at their experiences there. and then they've been in the united states for many, many years. so, chechnya and the turmoil, the decades of turmoil, all the years of conflict, maybe plays a tangential role in all of this. >> it's interesting i thought, a
